Another new male possum has been seen in the area. It's possible that this possum is Dexter, who visited very briefly in May last year.

For comparison, here are photos of Dexter and the new possum. Bearing in mind that possums look different when photographed from different angles, and also that Dexter will have grown somewhat since the first photo (well over a year ago), I think it's quite possible this is the same possum.

Here's a photo. This shows perhaps about 2/3 of the snake. I'd estimate it was 2.5 m long.

Flea has now completed her course of treatment and, although she's still missing a patch of fur, there is now no sign of infection. Another victory for the Ceclor treatment! Here's a recent photo of her. You can see that her pouch is bulging noticeably.
Finally, here's a photo of Kiki and Svejk together in a tree. It's very unusual to see these two this close together; normally Svejk would have been chased off by this time. Possibly they're mating, but are being more discreet about it than Pinot was.
